This shows the 'cartoon' characters on the inner parts of the doorway. The animals look to me like cats. The carving looks so crisp that I suspect that the original stones were renewed in the 19C.
St Mary's Church, Tutbury

This church was part of a Benedictine priory founded by Henry de Ferrers in the 1080s. The nave survived because it also served as the parish church. The crossing, transepts, choir and apse did not survive but were reinstated in the 19C, designed by G E Street. (Information from Nikolaus Pevsner, Buildings of England - Staffordshire, 1974)
